Would it be ever possible to restore Chippewa Lake? It haunts me to see tree groing through the supports, such as...http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery452.htm?Picture=1
It's just said, I'd like to see it resoted. Is it possible?

sure, it's possible. for LOTS of money!

I don't see any way that anyone could restore Chippewa Lake. The Woodie is at the "break when you touch it" stage and everything else has been vandalised or burned. The only way I'd see it coming back is if everything was torn down, something new went in its place, and gangs were kept out at night, which is highly unlikely...

I'm sure the town of Chippewa Lake is a real ghetto at night.

There's nothing to save. You might as well pick any other lake anywhere in Ohio and build a park there, provided you can't realize that there are more than enough amusement parks in this state.

Who would want to destroy the "new beauty" of Chippewa Lake anyhoo? It's beautiful in a creepy Scooby-doo-and-the-gang kind of way. ;)

Anything is restorable, whether it's worth the effort and $$$ is a different story.

Scooby Doo? I was thinking more along the lines of the video game Silent Hill. :-)
Maybe someone with a lot of money and time could remove and restore a few things, like the Tumble Bug maybe?
BUt more than likely what is there now will always be there........rotting away. :-/

They won't let the Bug go without your buying the rest of the park. Been there, tried that.

I have had this discussion with Jeff in other topics. I still don't understand how lakefront property in Ohio can just sit there and rot. It doesn't have to be a restoration of the park. Lakefront property is at a premium in Illinois. No way would Chippewa Lake Park just sit and waste away if it was in Illinois.
Either is would be restored or completely removed for another investment.

Lake Erie is "lakefront," Chippewa Lake is farm land around a very large pond. :)
Besides, developers won't try to move in where there is ridiculous zoning and a sort of white trash ghetto. Who wants that?
